Redford wimps out.
Nora Lee Mandel
Maven's Nest
January 1, 2016
Human connections the actors well establish are more convincing than political messages. . .Much is head-scratching and moral debates are more rueful than thoughtfully deep.

It feels like a relic from another time, which isn't exactly a bad thing.

This is the most depressing movie ever made about radicalism.
Stephen Silver
September 19, 2013
Far and away the most impressive thing about it is that Redford's ability to convince his famous friends to appear in small roles.

The Company You Keep is an effective, slow-burning mystery, boasting one of the most impressive casts of the last few years.

Redford proves that he's still capable of making the sort of provocative political thrillers that would make a younger generation envious.
Bruce Bennett
Spectrum (St. George, Utah)
June 3, 2013
Redford skillfully directs a cast so talented and comprehensive it threatens to overpower the briskly unassuming, but sharply written script.

Well-crafted, wellintentioned and well, just a tad dull, Redford's radical-chic-road-trip will appeal to the Senior Railcard crowd.

Welcome back, Mr Redford.

[Director Robert Redford] deftly articulates the moral morass that can arise when idealism gives way to reality; he also has some very definite things to say about the way today's sensation-hungry, click-addicted media operates.

Talk about timing. Whether it's good or bad remains to be seen.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
Aaron Yap

Dreadfully near-catatonic pace that never makes you feel like there's much at stake.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

At the very least, this generation proves that they still have compelling stories to tell. (Complete Content Details for Parents also available)

Things come together satisfyingly at the end, but by then the urge to jump out of one's theater seat has been in effect for at least 45 minutes.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
April 30, 2013
A tougher work might have seemed provocatively relevant in the tragic context of current events, but this film has a muted nostalgia for the days when bomb-tossing students had easy-to-pronounce names and might grow up to be as cleancut as Robert Redford.

April 30, 2013
An old-fashioned political drama that's well-intentioned and heartfelt.

Clearly, Redford has no trouble drawing talent; if he's ever interested in remaking Meteor or Midnight in Paris, he's halfway there.

Robert Redford -- who once was an active liberal -- is now a tired capitalist. He's also a worn-out egotist.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
Rick Bentley
Fresno Bee
April 26, 2013
[Redford] still manages to tell an interesting story of family painted against a political backdrop. It's not going to spark any great movements, but it is worth a sit in at the local theater.
